Button on sale at the Texas GOP state convention this weekend.
Late Update: Our reporter-bloggers at Election Central got in touch
with the folks at the Texas GOP. And they say they didn't
know anything about it, would have prevented it from being sold if they had.
Oh, stop it!!! Josh is a friend of mine, but this is why liberals get the reputation of not having a sense of humor. This is not offensive. Repeat, this is not offensive. It. Is. Funny. You know how I know? I've used the same joke myself and gotten laughs. And, no, it's not one of those, it's-only-funny-if-a-black-person-says-it. It's just funny.
Calling Michelle Obama "Barack's Baby Mamma"? Yeah, that's offensive.
Making a "White House" joke, hardly. For the record, I also said that African-Americans would no longer be able to call 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, "the Blame-Whitey House" either.
Um, that one, you might want to stay away from.
